    So the girls haven't wanted anything to do with the snow since it fell. Today, it would seem the pullets have resigned themselves to having their first winter. I spotted Diana poking around on the snow pile from the area I cleared, and ran in for my camera.


    Well, when I got back with the camera, Freema made it clear that she would NOT have snow pictures this year!

    Diana was still checking out the snow pile:

    Finally, a few of them began following me out into the snow:

    Snow looked tasty. They had to try it for themselves:

    'This isn't so bad,' comments Wynne:

    'And that looks good!' she adds, seeing her friends:

    There must have been something good. More takers:

    Kate's on her way now:

    Freema's changed her mind. 'Wait for me!!':
    [​IMG]


    Meanwhile, Betty took her place on the feed shed:
    [​IMG]


    'Well, would you want to put your bare feet in the snow?':
    [​IMG]


    Moments later, she apparently changed her mind. 'Don't even say it...':
    [​IMG]


    So they ate snow here:

    And then over there:

    Meanwhile, back at the coop, Cricket has made it clear she won't have anything to do with the frozen white landscape:

    Mako is confused. 'Where did everyone go?':
    [​IMG]


    'There are footprints here...' she notices:
    [​IMG]


    'Hey, I see them!' she exclaims. 'But how to get over there..?':
    [​IMG]


    Well, obviously it wasn't acceptable to walk all that way in the snow:
    [​IMG]


    'Ack! Crash landing!':
    [​IMG]


    '...Phew. Made it at last...':

    Thanks for all the comments! [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm not a real technical person, so I'll just post the mumbo-jumbo on the box. [​IMG] It's a Nikon D3100 with a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm lens. I think. (It was a birthday present. I just wanted a nice camera to use with my birds. [​IMG] My dad knew what he was looking for so he got a fancy one.)
